Ascension Day Mass

The Feast of the Ascension, celebrates when Jesus ascended to heaven.  This feast day is one of the ecumenical feasts of Christian churches, along with the celebrations of the Passion, Easter, and Pentecost. Ascension Day is a holy day of obligation and is generally observed on a Thursday, the fortieth day after Easter.  Our children yesterday helped to lead a wonderful Ascension Day Mass with Fr. Uduak.  They read clearly, sang beautifully and were appropriately respectful during this special Mass.
